Laura was the reason I was able to be completely calm and present on my wedding day. From our first meeting to the wedding rehearsal, she was always prepared to tackle and anticipate any wedding issues. On top of that, she is a genuinely nice, warm person and exactly who you want around on your wedding day. Thank you again, Laura!

Laura was so great to work with. I am so glad that we had her as our wedding planner. We did not have to worry about anything on our wedding day. My bridesmaids dresses were falling down and Laura helped to fix them and they stayed up on night on my bridesmaids! Wouldn't know what to do if she wasn't there. She was very organized and detailed with the planning which made us feel at ease and our wedding day went smoothly as planned. Laura is very flexible and we really enjoyed working with her.

I don't think we can say enough good things about Laura. I chose her business on a whim while doing an internet search (who wouldn't go for Brides on a Budget??), and never regretted a single decision. We are quite possibly the world's most unorganized couple, so it was wonderful to have someone like Laura on board with us. We hired her for the whole package (planning the whole day, in essence), and worked with her for about 18 months leading up and including the day of. She kept us on task with her many levels of check lists (bless her heart!), and also kept us on schedule. Her choices of vendors were par to none. As for the day itself, I don't know what we would have done without her. When we showed up an hour late for our own rehearsal, she didn't bat an eye (again, sorry about that). And when there was the inevitable family drama during the reception, she made sure we weren't aware of it. Everything went off smoothly, and we didn't get rained on! We couldn't have asked for a better day, or a better planner.

From the first meeting I knew Laura Ursin, owner of Brides on a Budget, was the event planner for my daughters wedding. Laura listened and thoughtfully questioned my daughter regarding the vision and vibe for the wedding. Laura nailed it!! Her enthusiasm for the venue, shores of Lake Michigan and tent reception in Elkhart Lake had us all on the same page throughout the planning. With my daughter living in Salt Lake City Laura was outstanding in her communication skills and always available to answer questions or concerns. Laura's strong interpersonal skills, communication style and professional organization makes her an excellent event planner. I would recommend Brides on a Budget with the highest regard. Laura and staff made my daughters special day come together and it was perfect.

I had Laura handle my daughters wedding two weeks ago that both the wedding and reception for 200 people was at our farm. She was perfect with the pre-wedding planning with my daughter and me, no question. But her star shined on that wedding day. At one point, I remember glancing out the window with all the vendors showing up at the same time and Laura out there pulling it all together and thinking, OMG they'll never be ready in time! Boy was I wrong. Laura had it all pulled together and when we started the wedding procession, everything was perfect! I could have never pulled it off on my own. Her staff was AMAZING. She was AMAZING. She handled everything and pulling off a wedding at your residence presents a whole set of challenges you don't see at banquet hall. I was able to sit back and talk with the guests and not be bothered by anything. My guest were blown away and asked how did I do it? BOAB!!!!

P.S. If you need bartenders, hire her's! You won't be disappointed ladies! :)

Laura saved my life literally. When I got engaged I was working several jobs and had no idea where to start and then had to do it all on a budget. Laura was beyond amazing. She helped us through all the key decisions, found us the perfect venues and built what was the most amazing day of our lives and I can honestly say from my facebook pages, many other people's as well.

If you are a bride who needs a little or a lot of help with someone who's been through it, Laura is your person. I can honestly say without her I probably wouldn't even be married right now!

What a party we through and I owe it all to her.

Laura was wonderful! I couldn't have asked for anyone better. We had her for day-of services, but I felt like she proved so much more. She took care of talking to vendors in the final weeks, which helped alleviate some stress!

We spoke on the phone more than a few times to make sure we're on the same page (I live in Chicago). She understood my vision exactly, and she made it quite easy to plan a wedding in Madison from Chicago.

Everything went off without a hitch. The ceremony was well timed and she kept things moving along at the appropriate times. Our reception was absolutely fantastic. She worked with our vendors to make sure my surprises for the guests were kept a secret. She handled setup and clean up at the reception, which was a huge help.

She worked with some of our vendors before, so that helped things go even more smoothly throughout the day.

Definitely go with Laura!

Laura was fantastic. She kept us on budget, on point, and got questions answered quickly and clearly. Not only that, but she was simply a pleasure to work with. Over the 8 months or so we worked together, she was more like a friend than anything else. I would highly recommend her to anyone. She was a huge part of making our day amazing.

I was the Mother of the Bride and contacted Brides on a Budget about four weeks before the wedding. Laura (wedding plannerfrom BOAB) was unbelievable. Everything happened exactly as the bride and groom wanted. There is no way we could have made this happen without her. I recommend her totally and completely! She was so responsive, organized, make suggestions, accepted what we wanted and provided so many extra. She was sensitive to have step parents, special requests and a very young ring bearer. I cannot think of anything she missed and she planned for things I never thought of before the wedding. I have heard some planners can seem a bit bossy to guests but Laura never came close to that. She was a delight! Diane
